English. The students who have studied chemistry, biochemistry, physics, and
pharmacy in undergraduate level (BSc) will complete their knowledge at Master
of Science level. The subjects of the Chemistry MSc studies include Advanced
mathematics, Solid phase physics, Molecular biology, Coordination chemistry,
Elemental organic chemistry, Advanced physical chemistry, Instrumental
analysis, Theoretical chemistry, Organic chemistry of natural compounds,
Surface chemistry, Proteins and protein networks, Advanced chemometry,
Environmental technology, Pharmaceutical chemistry, Radiochemistry, and
several more specific applied chemistry subjects. The education is composed
from theoretical lectures, tutorial seminars and practical sessions. The students

laboratoris and lectures. Lectures are held for bigger audiences, sometimes
combined for similar sciences field together. At the end of the semester students
have to pass written or oral examinations. Seminars are usually more informal
study groups for a smaler group of students, where there is room for individual
consultation, discussion of the material and solving exercises. They usually
conclude with an independently written paper or an examination.
